The search for the lost Chicago portfolio

<img src=";

We mentioned, yesterday, our frustration at not being able to find a photo, one of about 50, that we had snapped in Chicago in 2006.

These were the last photos I made before my first seizure and subsequent diagnosis of brain cancer, so I have some investment in locating and preserving them. In particular, I remember a shot of a curving staircase that descended from the sidewalk to a subterranean mall.

A couple of shots have survived on the blog, in web resolution only, sadly. The last one, seen above, is dated November, 2006 so I’m searching backups that go back 3 years, given that my current iPhoto has near-complete amnesia of photos taken that first week in October. And, oh yeah, we installed Snow Leopard today. Still, no dice – no Apple-variety Leopard seems to know how to find Chicago.

I can tell from the image file sequence numbers what’s missing. iPhoto has preserved every image from my old, and much-loved Leica Digiluxx II up to L1050750 – there is then a gap up to L1050794 – 44 pix, the more dear for not being able to see them. Apparently this lacking iPhoto db has been backed-up everywhere… digital archeology commences…

    Tried a recovery program?
    They will still be somewhere on the hard disk and you might be able to locate them. Good luck!

    Thought of that, but Hd got full about 2 months ago so I put in a new one, and restored from Time Machine.

    I guess I could put old HD in a cheap Fry’s USB enclosure and snoop digitally thus…
